Llantysillo Mountain Race
By clive on Apr 14, 2008
There are lots of bits of Wales I have yet to explore and on Saturday I got an excuse to run round an area north east of Llangollen at Rhewl. Just over a 100 runner, some rain, some wind and some sun. The race was an AM (6.2 miles and 2100 feet). I had been off running for the preceding week due to a stomach bug, but suffered no problems on the day and was pleased with my time and position in the race.
The learning for the day was I need to do a bit more work on my lower legs to cope better with walking the really steep sections, but a pleasing outing.
Meeting a PhD student from the Sports Sciences department at Aberystwyth University tomorrow to see if we can introduce a little science in my running. Should be interesting.
